8:32am
our early response system. when the alarm woke me up this morning, i didn't know exactly what was going on and i think that is appropriate because when the earthquake happens there is a great deal of confusion. unlike 1906, we are much better prepared. with that being said, i still have nightmares that at some point in the future we know there is a 2 in 3 probability that the great one is going to hit us in a few years . i have a grandmother that is not prepared, i have many family members who are not prepared. thank you for san francisco who is ready for the big one. mayor lee is going to be here shortly and he's going to sign a piece of legislation that supervisor wiener and i worked on to make

[ applause ] . i want to echo what the fire chief said. we continue to
8:38am
prepare all the time. we have a mayor who i know it's all about resiliency and getting back to where we were when and if and when it happens. with that, i'm going to give it over to bob to give it over to the big guy. >> all right. the mayor we have today, please welcome mayor ed lee.

8:41am
sign the soft story legislation. we are going to sign that. >> board of supervisors in a unanimous vote led of course by our president chiu and skont wiener and and our engineer, we are all on this. mandatory soft story building ordinance certainly will make our soft story buildings have a backbone that will stand firm against any earthquake shaking and this is what we've learned through many years of study since not only 1906 but 1989 loma prieta and i sign this for not only for the things we have to do, but we have over 200 projects
8:42am
that are under way because the voters know we have to do a lot more preparation and we'll continue doing this. i'm glad the board has hearings. this ordinance also takes care of tenants who feel that maybe the cost might hurt them and we have devised a plan that will assist them that needed some economic help. average building will spend about $60-130,000. everybody has been involved to preserve our housing stock. if there is a seismic event because of this ordinance and implementation they will stay in our city and make sure they survive and not be hurt by a soft story building structure. with that, are we ready to sign? all right. let's get it
8:43am
done. >> there we go. [ applause ] . thank you.
8:44am
well, i'm daniel leery. the chair of the super bowl committee. we've been going at this for about 9 months now and mayor lee gave me the honor and privilege of taking on this task. we've had an incredible momentum and we have mayor and condoleeza rice and steve lewis, we have some firepower to the committee in the form of world champions and hall of famer and folks that have taken over part of 10 percent
8:45am
of super bowls and we can't thank you enough for taking this on. we hand off our final package. the one thing i want to realize is that this is a community effort. it's not just about san francisco, santa clara, san jose. it's about the entire region coming together. the reason i took on this goal is that we have amazing things had -- happening in our community and we are going to highlight these in the next six weeks and i'm also highlighting things that are not yet great. we have 1.2 million people who
8:46am
are too poor to meet their basic needs. what we are going to do by bringing the greatest game to the region is we are going to make this for the entire good of the community and that is why it's going to be the most impactful super bowl bid and super bowl nfl this nation has ever seen. with that i'm going to turn it over to mayor lee. >> good morning. daniel, thank you again for your wonderful leadership for aheading up our bay area super bowl committee. i remember the first time we talked about what it was and what the 9ers meant to us and i want to thank you and the whole franchise for continue to go work and the wonderful legacy
8:47am
the 9ers has. just the last couple of days i have to admit that some of us were kind of looking very disappointed about the events regarding the blue angels and it remind us how important this is and events like the blue angels and that we can't do without because if they decide they can be here for any reason, there is real heavy breathing that goes on and that's something i felt. that means i'm enthusiastic about the americas cup and i'm absolutely thrilled and enthusiastic about our super bowl bid. it's bringing all
8:48am
the elements of our city together, the neighborhood, fan base and has that wonderful event. i have had a chance to relive the excitement of the super bowl and if i told steve young, i paced five yards in my office all day long and at home to relive this past super bowl. that just reflects the excitement that we have with the super bowl bid. now today, it's my privilege to co-announce with everyone here two people that are additional firepower to our super bowl bid committee. george seefrd and
8:49am
steve young, they really don't need an introduction but i love to talk about them to the 9ers. steve brought us his legacy. during this time, the 49ers earned the best team in the nation and continues with that legend so coach, thank you for bringing your winning record and wonderful great name to help us win another super bowl bid for super bowl 50 or 51 for the bay area. and coach seefrd's partner in 1999 was the famous quarterback steve young who through a record 6 touchdown passes during that game and became the first player to lead in super bowl
8:50am
rushing and passing. thank you for your support and leadership and lending your bid for this bay area support of this effort to bringing it all the way to the end zone. you know, george and steve and jed, we all know there is no better place in america to host the super bowl for 50 and 51 than the bay area. the game to be played in santa clara, we know that every hotel and restaurant between here and san jose will be filled and the entire region will benefit tremendously from this super bowl. that's why we have everyone from our entire departments from city administrators and super works to make sure we host a great event for the whole entire area. an i know that once we
8:51am
host this first super bowl, once we win it and host it that we'll be in the rotation for future super bowls as well. we have the hotels, hospital, transportation network, the businesses, the support to do this right and do this well. i want to just again, thank daniel, thank the entire super bowl bid committee and welcome in george and steve to join jed and daniel and all of us in making sure we persuade the nfl in may, that we have earned the right to host super bowl 50. thank you. [ applause ] >> as you know we have the draft coming up and for our super bowl committee team. we
8:52am
created to get the two top guys in the draft. we have them now, coach seefrd and steve young. it's important to echo what mayor lee said about bringing everything together. that's what sports is about, that's what sports does for a community. we've been working tirelessly to build a state of the art state -- stadium that embodies california from a technological standpoint. this is one that i'm most proud of. tht the first league national football team. for our home games we'll be powered completely by the sun. no one else can say that in professional sports in this country. that's something that highlights what we are trying to do and what we are trying to show what sports can be, not just for the community, but a
8:53am
beacon for what we should be striving for everyday of our life from a technological standpoint and stability. we are head of construction and we are moving forward and we can't wait to play game in 2014 and very much looking forward to playing a super bowl and getting ourselves in the rotation. we love the bay area and we want to show everybody else in the world that this is the greatest place to host the greatest game in the world. i would like to introduce coach seefrd and thank him and george for being a part of this. [ applause ] . >> thank you, mayor and dan, jed. i'm obviously proud and excited to be part of this committee that will attempt to bring the 50th super bowl to
8:54am
the san francisco bay area. it was i believe in 1967 that the first super bowl was played in los angeles, california. it seems only fitting now that the nfl bring the 50th super bowl to northern california in the san francisco bay area. san francisco and the area over the years has hosted successfully many nfc championship games of super bowl stanford in 1985. i thought it was 95 and most recently the world series games. we have so much to offer. we have an awesome stadium and the attractiveness in the city itself and from the wine country to the north to caramel to the south, it's a great venue to host the game. i'm familiar with one of the two areas in particular more
8:55am
than the other, the north. and at any rate, we have a tremendous tradition going back to the days of keys ar and our great football players and we have the back fields where everybody is in the hall of family, henry johnson, joe perry, i'm sure you remember all of them. now we have the great players part of our tradition. we are happy to offer a great event venue and steve young is here and he's the reason we've been able to win so many games and win the super bowl. what year was that? 1995. thank you very much. >> thanks, george. it's always to get reunited with him to see him. super bowl has a way of
8:56am
defining careers and cities and you look at the championships that have been here recently with the giants, obviously with the 49ers back in the mix and the history of 49ers we've had a history. the idea that it's here in san francisco makes sense. it's one of the greatest destination cities in america. now that's been taken care of and i appreciate those efforts. super bowls have a way of building a lot of bridges. this is a bridge building effort and i appreciate to be associated with that kind of inclusivity to allow people with any strained relationships over the year, that they can be amended
8:57am
and super bowl is a place to do that. if you think about where the super bowl has been in the past and compare it to san francisco, san francisco lacks nothing. really the entire bay area to host a tremendous event. i think it obviously makes sense to everybody here but nationwide, people think about the bay area and of course it makes sense. i look forward to that game and hopefully winning that bid next month. thanks a lot. [ applause ] . >> steve, george. thank you very much for coming on board. supervisor ferrel, thank you for all your efforts on the supervisor side. mayor lee, jed, thank you all. we'll take, you guys can grab us afford. we -- may 7, bid is due, may 27 we present in boston to the owners and with this team behind us, we are getting it
8:58am
done. thank you. have a great day. the
8:59am
pledge of allegiance?
